Title: Build thread - Rob's Audi UR Quattro
Post by: RobClubley on July 22, 2015, 08:39:41 am
I've just bought my dream car, but it needs a lot of work so this will be my build thread - once I get the car home!!
It was previously owned by VASK member Wilco (Steve) in Taupo.

As I'm a writer for Auto Clique (now DriveLife.co.nz) my build thread will live there - hence the watermarks - but I'll duplicate it here :)

Update: AutoClique forums no longer exist, which is where the images linked from, so I'll find the ones I can elsewhere and edit my posts.

It has many rust holes.

Title: Re: Build thread - Rob's Audi UR Quattro
Post by: RobClubley on July 22, 2015, 11:33:06 am
Vehicle mover is booked and paid for - just need to wait for them to sort it out now :)

First job will be to move the Skoda to the car port then clear out my garage a bit to make space.
Then I'll start to strip the car, bag and label everything, take photos etc.
It's going to need it to get a proper idea of how bad the rust really is.
I have to admit I'm feeling somewhat daunted by the prospect as I'm pretty much a self taught mechanic :D
I have a mate who's an ex-mechanic to call on when I'm stuck and several people have already offered help, advice and parts, which is awesome as this will be a learning experience.

This needs to be done on as tight a budget as possible but it needs to be done right.

I want to drive this car, so I'm determined that it won't be in bits too long (let's see how that works out!!)

Small world - especially with these cars in NZ!
I assume she didn't have so much rust then? :D
The next owner was in Tauranga and must have had it near the sea. It hasn't had a WOF for ten years!

no not so much, have a look at the inner sunroof area, always had water come through the sunroof when it rained, believe the sunroof rain gutters were missing when I had it
Think it has a Golf GTi brake master cylinder, courtesy of me

otherwise she never gave me any problems :)

GroupbA2rob it's good you put your hand up.  I haven't really any history apart from it was in Wellington for  a while before I bought it ex Tauranga through a mutual friend.  I've only tidied it a bit and new cambelt, pump and fluids, as you do when one buys a new car.
I reckon Rob will restore it as it deserves.  For me it was always going to be third or fourth in the line behind stuff that is already underway or is a daily driver.
The oil drips in the carport are not from the URQ! 

I'd say good luck but luck is for people without skill.  Deal to it Rob.

All the best with the project Rob.

I'm itching to get my hands on it now. Vehicle movers collect tomorrow.

Post by: RobClubley on July 31, 2015, 11:40:21 am
So far my shopping list, apart from all new fluids and stuff, is:

Boot gas struts
Sunroof seal
Wheel brace without hand-slicing peeling chrome
Rear brakes (haven't looked at fronts yet)

I have the boot stripped, all knackered speakers gone with associated wiring, back seat and rear cards removed, rear bumper and lights removed.
Mouse removed. :D

Seats and carpets out next then dash for a proper look at that wiring.

I've had a few opportunities to start stripping out the car this week.

Looks like both sides of the boot have had holes cut out and patched.

Holes from towbar!

Its not as bad as I thought it was going to be body wise. You should see some of the rust guys deal with on the UK based GolfMk1 forum.

Im not sure about that ECU. Being a K-Jet would it have an ECU like that? I would have thought it wouldnt have an ECU just like a Mk1 or Mk2 GTI.

Yeah I'm a bit more reassured after having a good poke around. We'll see what's under the carpets soon once I get some more trim out of the way.

Not sure on the ECU - I haven't even looked it the part numbers on it yet :D

I had a spare hour today so I finished pulling out the carpets. It looks mostly okay apart from the front bit that was still wet and obviously has been leaking somewhere.

So far I've been concentrating on stripping things out and I haven't started on tracing the wiring yet. I'm doing this in 30-90 minute bits when I can so it'll be a while I think :D

The ECU should be under the dashboard, above the drivers side footwell. It's a precarious place, that position can be threatened by water leaking in from the lower corner of the windscreen (one of the most common places for rust on a quattro).

Interesting.  Do you know when it was repainted after a number of repairs?  The left rear quarter panel was pretty rough with an amount of obvious filler..
It was painted outside only, that is, the engine bay wasn't done.  The new paint is a slightly different shade - a bit more red than original.
The car has clearly had a history since it was imported.  It'd be good to fill in a few gaps.

So I bought it off Rex, around 2000 and had it for approx 1 -2 years "cant recall"
Rex told me "from memory"  that it had a big rear shunt, and one of the rear quarter panels were completely replaced - I believe by the guy who changed the upholstery to red,  had the shunt repaired and sold it to Rex etc.
Also I was told by a panel beater that the roof had been replaced, through a possible roll over, this would have explained the missing sunroof gutter system, as every time it rained I got soaked "the sunroof was down"
Believe I spent approx 8k on mechanical fix ups through Continental Cars Audi, suggest you get in touch with them as they will have the records on what was done.
I sold it not because of the mechanical costs, but because I didnt have anywhere to store it, and do what your doing to it now
Hope this answers some questions for you

Pulled out the rest of the leather trim last night, removed mirrors (which have 1m of wire going to a connector under the dash!)
Repaired the electric window wiring - they didn't work after I pulled out the old alarm wiring. The windows no longer work with the ignition off, which is good! But they both need pulling apart and lubricating as one hardly moves and the other makes bad noises :D

There are so many wires in this car that aren't connected to anything!
I also made a decision to remove the factory pneumatic central locking. Electric remote locking kit on its way from Ebay which will give me two spare keys, two remotes and a button to open the boot from the remote. :)

I had a visit from John with some Chemical Guys goodies from Detail Depot.

I spend a few hours today tinkering with the car. I spend some time scraping at various sticky substances on the car. Someone has used silicone sealant as glue in a few places so I've been getting the bulk of that removed.

I also scraped off a load of rock hard epoxy adhesive from the boot lid.

(http://drivelife.co.nz/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/Audi-UR-Quattro-0170.jpg)

I had a go at some of the greasy mucky stuff but after one go with the diluted Chemical Guys degreaser I realised that rinsing it off was filling up the boot with water so I'll tackle that later I think!


Good news! the rust coloured stuff in the front is actually not rusty - I assume rusty water from somewhere has made it that colour.

It was included in the sale - it's in Steve's paddock at the moment. It's a Coupe GT so shares a lot with the URq. I'll be stripping it as completely as possible so I can re-use parts and retain some for spares. Hoping I can replace a lot of the damaged trims and incorrect screws and bolts on mine. There are loads of things I've taken off and they have two mismatched screws or bolts, so one doesn't quite fit properly.

Wow, Rob! Haven't been to VASK for a while and have just read your rebuild thread from cover to cover....
Respect to you taking on such a project, wish you well and look forward to seeing the completed restoration.
Makes me very grateful to have a rust free 20V in mint condition! Took it out for a short squirt today for the first time in a while as it's had a flat battery that needed a deep recharge kick from another battery then 36 hours on a charger.
From what I remember last time I spoke to Steve at Ellerslie, he'll still have a few coupes in hand!
Audi Tradition can be a good source of parts but everything is Uber expensive, only saving grace is freight ex-Germany is far cheaper than UK. Having a parter spare is a great idea.
Look forward to reading the updates.

If I'm not mistaken you own #FA900600.  This would make it an '85 model year quattro in graphite metallic LB7V, WB.

Did you note Factory data label normally located under the trim of the boot lid this will confirm the colour and trim option amongst other build spec. An identical label should have been placed in the inside cover of the original service schedule if it was supplied. Often dealers discarded the schedules of import cars to prevent NZ owners identifying past owners.

That is the right chassis number but according to the data in that link it's Montego Black.
Graphite Metallic is more of a dark grey as far as I can see from pictures I've found online.

There's no label and I have no paperwork. Apparently it had a rear end shunt at some point - looks like it may have had a new boot lid, or the label was removed.

Not sure on timeline. It's booked in for rust and paintwork this month (still thinking about how exactly to pay for that) but after that I want to take my time rebuilding it properly. I'm hoping no more than a year, I'd like it to be less, but costs will be a factor especially as the Mrs is working part time at the moment.
I need to be careful not to get distracted with anything non-essential on the road to getting it warranted and driveable.

Are we talking about the same link Rob, Montego black is not listed in the 1985 model year range 85FA900001 - 85FA901500 incorporating your Vin.

Not sure where I found this info but the notes I made before I bought the car are that FA900600 was made between 31/12/84 and 31/01/85 and the engine WR 004829 in the car was built on 30/11/83!  All the colour info I can see says Montego also but not say it's right.

Cool, good info.

Well put it this way - after the rust is done and it's painted it will definitely be Montego Black :D

Four screws to get the instruments out (two were missing) and five bolts to remove the dash.

I decided to be sensible and booked a local car transporter to get it to the paint shop this coming Monday. I was tempted to drive it there - about 1km - but knowing my luck something would happen.

There are rusty holes in both sides - on the driver side in the corner of the back window and the passenger side near the B pillar.
Under the passenger side hole there's rust at the join from wing to floor which goes right through.
Holes rusted around both rear lights
Hole in the A pillar near the passenger door hinge.
Quite bad rust by the sun roof
Surface rust on the rear bumper mount.
About a dozen holes to weld up left by the towbar.
Also filler in the rear corners from a previous repair - no idea what's under there yet!!

There are pics of most of these earlier in this thread.

Almost got the steering rack out. Not sure if the quattro has the same one but it seems like a good thing to save. There's one bolt that looks impossible to get to without dropping the transmission. Bugger.

Same. It came up recently on another forum I'm on where a guy was asking if anyone would like to help his friend pay for his car that was uninsured and caught fire due to badly done electrics. Granted I've driven with no insurance but you can't cry about it and expect others to fix it when things like that happen. No morals these days.

All good Rob, I reckon these cars are still stars. Have used mine a lot this year and after parking at the beach, or in town, have young guys (mostly high school students) all over it with lots knowing what it is.

I'm seriously thinking about using as my daily drive and even maybe selling the Skoda to cover some of the costs.

Did I really just say that?

I take the train to work most days and have had regular review cars this year for Autoclique, so the Skoda hasn't had that much use.

I say daily it if it's only the milk run etc followed by the weekend fun that you will all ready be doing.
As you won't really clock up many extra km.
Take the wife's car if you don't like the parking or its raining etc.
I use my mk2 in this manner and feel like it's the weekend as soon as I turn the key.
Only down side is when it's off the road you don't want to have to rush the repair but I have the work van for that.

Picked up the Skoda from repair - they've done a good job. Visited the quattro too. Not started yet but definitely Monday :D
I met PJ at Just Rust today and he showed me a classic Porsche Targa car they're replacing the floor in, and an old Austin where they've fabricated a whole new floor. Good stuff.
Oh and the headlight lenses are done, should get them back soon.

Have a look at the Wurth range of products .
Easy to apply inside box sections using one of those spray outfits with a long flexible tube with a nozzle on the end which spray both a circular spray and a spray out the end ..............totally coats the inside of any enclosed area.
I have used these, first to spray a rust inhibitor and then followed up with a wax to seal the surface

But look at that car. Look at it. It's awesome. It'll be so worth it.

Things the internet has told me:

Brake fluid - DOT4 - 4l to flush and bleed
Oil and filter - cheap oil to flush then 5w30 synthetic, 4.5 litres - Steve change the oil and filter when he had it
Fuel filter
Air filter
Coolant flush and change - G13/G12
Power steering fluid - ATF - need to check what colour I have
Gearbox and centre diff Diff oil - Castrol TAF-X or equivalent 2.7 litres
Rear diff - Castrol GL5 Spec diff oil EPX 85w90 2.2 litres (VW garage quoted $98+GST per litre :o )

URQ85 seems like the best so far. The main reason I want a pplate is to get the new slimline plates because they look nice.

Probably best to shelve the idea for a while :D
Plus I may have to replace my camera for about the same money as a pplate :D

This is typical for 'repairs'
My parents had their car repaired after accident damage and later, that was where the rust appeared.

Yes I remember I asked you about them and they quoted me roughly the same per wheel for the same job.

I used a panel beater in Petone, can't remember the company name now but the guy's name is Dave and his number's 566 4816. I haven't done the job, but they did the gloss black paint on my other set of rims and it was $50 per wheel incl sanding down and prep but no repair required. He said factor in another $30-40 per wheel if sanding/filling was needed.

Message Tim as well, he had a set of 19" BBS fixed and powdercoated for less money than your quote at another place in Seaview.

Agree with you there...  To bog and sand is an $80 repair in the hands of the shop apprentice. A reputable shop will avoid this work but out source it to a wheel refurbisher.

I used Arrows wheels in Auckland for two sets of quattro wheels. They acid strip, if necessary weld, machine then paint to the correct code as in Zermatt silver LY7Y.  Returned like new. Was a shame to fit them.!

That was Advanced Wheel Repairs, who used to be around the $80 mark. Who did you use?

They quoted me the same when I spoke to them a while back (I went in thinking your 80$).

Not sure if that helps, but they are consistent .

:)

I ended up getting the paint shop that did the whole car to do them at around the same price (maybe slightly cheaper but it was done at the same time as the re-spray).

True. But I do want a working stereo eventually and now's the time to install them and get the wiring in place.

One week until "deadline" :)

Okay the deadline is no more. They're started on the rusty A pillar and it's apparently a mess. so it will not be done by next week. They're going to send pics.

Correct offset, 17x8.5", correct stud pattern and tyres are a cheaper size.

Hi Rob:

I was once the owner of the black urq you are bringing back to life. 

I purchased it from Rob? in Auckland and used it as a daily driver for a number of years based out of Tauranga.

While I had it I can recall that I replaced the head, injectors, many ignition components (including the ECU - the spare one i gave to Wilco was a bit intermittent), radiators, some hydraulic and vacuum hoses etc... While it's hard to imagine I also pulled out what seemed like kilometers of surplus wiring.  I think it must have had a pretty serious alarm and audio system at some stage.

As alluded to by someone earlier in the thread, it once had a leak from the LHS sunroof area.  This was "fixed" by a panel shop in Tauranga where, from memory, they somehow installed a drain hose that was missing.  They thought the car may have once had a significant accident that necessitated a major roof repair or possibly even roof replacement earlier in its life.           

It's great to see it ended up in good hands and will once again be on the road.  It will be worth the time and effort.

Be sure to get a hold of me if you require anymore history.   

Richard

Wow you did a fair bit to the engine. It still runs well and is mechanically pretty good. But as you can see from this thread the bodywork has suffered somewhat!
I pulled a load more wiring out. It has had a total closure alarm at one point which was partially still in there. There's still more to tidy up.
Same with the audio. The cones of the speakers in there had all fallen apart.
The sun roof had one standard drain pipe and one non-standard one. I've got some new pipe which I hope will fit into the pillars and I hope to run it right out of the bottom of the car rather than into the A pillars as standard.
The body shop has fixed some pretty bad rust in the sunroof drains too.

There's a company in Europe who will be getting some more of the refurbed white AZEV 5 spokes later in the year:



They're not a bad price, waiting on a postage quote. I think they're the best option for aftermarket. Then I can keep the stock wheels and get them sorted out over time.

No more progress yet - they tell me it's booked for a couple of full weeks soon.

Is it wrong that I'm thinking about changing the rear spoiler? If I get the white 17s this would look cool.

Rear end now getting sorted out. Many towbar fixing holes to fill. And stripping the underseal has revealed a bodged repair from when the car has been hit in the rear. It was mostly held together with underseal behind the rear arch.

Called for a quick look and saw lots of hammering and smoke and welding going on in my car's boot.

They showed me this and said the rear of my Audi has the worst damage repairs they've ever seen. Multiple bodged repairs covered by lots of underseal to hide it. Lovely.

It seems I've chosen the right place to fix it though.

Oh, also, weird thing.
I emailed Audi UK with my chassis number to confirm paint code and apparently the factory in Germany says my car is Zermatt Silver Metallic.
This is puzzling because I've seen every layer of paint on my car and there's no silver in there. So it hasn't has a respray unless it was bare metal, which is highly unlikely.
I'm wondering if this is something to worry about!

The body is definitely going to be Montego Black Metallic.
Wheels I'm currently thinking Zermatt Silver.
Occasionally swinging back to white.

Those in silver will look great with black paintwork
White might be a bit too contrasty and consequently 'in your face' rather than  sophisticated good taste.
I hope I'm not stepping on any toes saying that

Caught up with this just now...... good to see progress, Rob.

Did you decide to can the personalised plate?

If not, I like Bullseye's suggestion of UROOOO, but URQQQQ is available too, which also looks pretty good.

You're either into PP or not. I happen to like them.
I'm constantly getting good feedback on my Amarok plate AMROKN.

Cheers

I was offered AUDI 00 by another VASK member, already made up in Euro plates so I decided to go for that :)

I have a unmanufactured Personalised Plate for on my car "some day" but just cannot bring myself to get them made, as it'd mean relinquishing its original plates. What a sad old beggar I've become😕. I don't particularly like PP's though, - they've got to be either clever or obtuse enough to be a puzzle, or to be accurate (like 280Z on a Nissan Fairlady, not TWOATZ - though that looks kinda funny now I've written it).

18's look good in silver or white to me.

I've never understood why someone would pay so much to put a plate on their car that says what the badges already say.

Definitely silver for the Azevs... Classier look IMO.

What size tyres would you use?
Title: Re: Build thread - Rob's Audi UR Quattro
Post by: RobClubley on February 19, 2016, 09:11:59 am
I'm thinking 225/40R18

235/35R18 are actually closer to the original size but might be a bit on the wide side.

I found a pic of an ur on 18s. They look a bit large.

Haha.

I think why those wheels look too big Rob is because those tyres are so small and not wide enough. Get well fitting tyres and it should look fine.

Ideally I need a friendly tyre fitter who can try out a couple of sizes for me.

True, perhaps a fatter tyre and pushed out slightly more to sit flush with the guards.

that black car's not too bad...

a downside is the bigger wheels will make your brakes look puny.

 :laugh:

about 18mths ago i also had fun with overseas delivery.
i ordered some lp records from the usa.
the box arrived at the delivery agent in pn (nz couriers) but because i used a po box they deemed it undeliverable, despite having my contact ph number on the box, the wankers sent it back to the usa !
i eventually got the order and a full refund from the seller.

At a glance with that black trim the bonnet looks bent!

Called in to Just Rust for a quick chat today but for some reason I didn't take any pics. Not like me I know. The rear of the car looks awesome, all done in black underseal, and the inside of the boot looks fantastic too.

They said they need to put aside a few days and it'll be done.

Also I collected the wheels from DHL - they look great, big, but great :)

Suggest you do a test fit with the wheels fitted with the tyre size you want to use while your ur is at the panel shop to check the clearance as the guards may have to be 're-rolled' for tyre clearance.

I don't have an exact figure yet but they said it will be less than 10k.
Initial estimate was 4.5-5.5k :D

A similar thing has happened with the total for the project that I hoped to spend to get it on the road.

If the car was originally black, that's what I'd choose.

Otherwise it should be in an original urq colour. Bling something else, not a urq!

If it was me it next choices would be either pearl white or tornado red.

The grey is nice but...................if it were just any car, a colour change is neither here nor there; with a classic such as this, I think that sticking with the original colour is preferable. Just my 2 cents worth.
At the end of the day you are the owner so you can do whatever you like despite everyone elses opinions and quite frankly, whatever colour it is it will be good to have another classic back on the road.

Talking of grey, I went to a vintage and classic car show yesterday and there was a MK 111 Zephyr painted a similar colour to the grey above which had been fitted with a V8, slightly bigger wheels and tyres and the interior redone in black leather exactly as original style.
The whole job had been done so well that you could have walked by and thought it was totally original as everything looked so 'right'.
It was my pick of the show despite several late model Porsches and a Ferrari as someone had made such great job on modifying it.

My vote would be:
- Stay with black
- Forget the pram handle rear spoiler unless you're going to do a sport or rally replica
- 16 or 17 inch wheels max, in silver or white, - black wheels lose their definition, better yet stay original

But that's what I'd vote for me, I'm a tired old b*stard, - you do to it what will make your heart swell when you look at it. The fact alone that you've dragged it out of the grave may do that for you without any aftermarket dress-up.

Awesome! You must be itching to start the reassembly, and even to just see the car shiny. I'm really looking forward to seeing it myself!

Oh yes, absolutely itching to get on with it.
No progress in the last couple of weeks, trying not to hassle them too much, but also making sure I keep in contact.
I bought some replacement wheel centre cap bolts from the UK which I think will fit - they're actually from a Renault. But they sent the key without the bolts - doh!

Called in and had a chat today - bonnet is looking like new in black primer now and I've seen the paint, in a tin, looks good :)

They had the bumpers test fitted and there's some more metalwork to do to make them sit properly at the front. There's another repair on the front crash bar area which looked a bit untidy but I was going to leave it as it would be invisible under the grille.

So another day's work to pull that apart and fix it properly.

Oh and the car's no longer running - looks like maybe fuel pump, probably wiring as it has had a pump put on from a different car to get it going and the wiring's not the tidiest. Chances are that got damaged then they fixed the hole in the floor nearby.
I seem to recall Steve telling me about robbing a pump from one of his other cars.

Start with the fuel pump relay. It should have a fuse in it.

Rob the fuel pump wiring is dodgy inside by the battery.  It's the single black(?) wire twisted to a green(?) wire that runs the pump.  Give it a tweak with the ignition on to hear the pump running before trying to crank it over.
It took me quite a while to find it when trying to get the car going originally.  It's just old an needs a tidy up.
You should have no trouble with the pump and filter, both new.  But yes the pump was designed for a CIS 911 so much the same specs for the time I had the car.  There was a good unit on the Coupe GT that I hope you kept!

Thanks mate. I doubt it's the pump, more likely disturbed wiring.

I went to the garage to do some sorting out of the many quattro parts. It has been a long time since I stripped it and I've forgotten where everything is. It's labelled but not sorted.
But I ended up doing something else. The rear plastic COUPE panel from the quattro has some cracks i it, but the one from the donor GT is much better, so I decided I'd use the GT one, then noticed that the quattro one has a fog light. Swapping it over became a two hour job with a Dremel but it's in there.

Got it cut out then realised the GT one was silvered inside.

Cool. It has the dash with lines across too, which is rare apparently.

Just dropped into Just Rust to drop off the fourth wheel, so it's not sitting on the space saver spare. They said the car is booked in for 3 days' work in two weeks, which should be enough to paint and finish!!

Cool. It has the dash with lines across too, which is rare apparently.

I hadn't heard of that, they're on mine. I think they made a few cosmetic changes very early on in the life of the coupe. Being one of the first (built 1981 & first reg new in NZ early 1982) mine has the flat front with four recessed small rectangular headlights which were replaced by the larger flat front single rectangles later that year (for the 1983 model year). This design was replaced again with the larger sloping front rectangles in 1984 (for 1985 model year). Mine also has the large (and vulnerable) indicators fitted in the extreme corners of the front bumpers with a metal guard over them. These were also replaced by Audi when the 4 headlamp design was replaced so are like rocking horse droppings. Am watching some on Ebay, but they are copies and are £140 ($300) a pair so will continue with tape repairs for now!

Am not sure, but think it was at this second facelift where the dash was changed (from flat rocker switches to cylindrical rotating), and where the standard alloy pattern changed to the more common thin multi-spoke design.

Am guessing (but have always assumed) that after the Coupe was introduced and sales took off Audi very quickly began to use more bits which were common to the Audi 80 on them wherever possible to keep the cost down, as opposed to the early examples which were using trim bits off the much higher priced lower volume quattro.

Wont affect balance at all, the "theory" is that paint can crush / wear away over time leaving your wheels loose.
Thats why they suggest never painting the mounting face or the lug holes.

Just spoke to them and they have two people doing things on it now.
I said "So it'll be finished by the end of the week won't it?"
She said "Probably, I don't see why not"
That's as close to a commitment as I could get :D

Put rubber on both sets and run whatever you feel like. I personally think the white ones looks awesome.
Title: Re: Build thread - Rob's Audi UR Quattro
Post by: RobClubley on June 10, 2016, 08:29:23 pm
I'll certainly keep both sets! Changing things like wheels, and the spoiler are going to split opinions. There will always be the purists who want it put to 100% stock, but it's not going to be truly stock again, the way some things have been changed, like the seats, and the speaker holes.

My plan is to make it look right, and add some mod cons but not in a way that compromises the spirit of the car, it has to be done properly. Anything modern, like an upgraded stereo, will be hidden as much as possible. The Blaupunkt tape deck is going in the dash, for example.

P.S....most people hate my choice but it was my choice and fit the 993turbo package that i got to change was a given....

You don't hang about!

Whilst you have all the internal access available, I would shoot some protective oil into the channels/blind panels/hollows.  POR15 do one called SW2 or there is the Wurth one that has the long hose applicator.
Title: Re: Build thread - Rob's Audi UR Quattro
Post by: black16v on June 15, 2016, 05:19:44 pm
dubstar is correct, get sum rust proofing into it NOW! Gold Seal is pretty good. But what ever you use do it now. If you have a compressor find a panel shop that uses Gold Seal, see if you can buy about 4 litres and borrow the applicator gun. The applicator has a long nylon tube to get right in cavities.

I have some protective stuff, I'll definitely spray some in the crevices.

I didn't get as much time as I wanted to on my day off work today, but I got the door handles re-fitted, makes it a lot easier to get in now.  :D Of course it took ages, I couldn't get the first one working properly, until I realised a small but critical bit was missing, so I had to dig out the spare one from the GT, then it was all good.

I had to remove the front bumper to re-fit the fog lights and indicators.

(http://drivelife.co.nz/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Robs-Audi-urquattro-Project-Rusty-4347.jpg)

It took ages to get it re-fitted and it was too dark to take a decent pic.

There are cat paw prints on it already, grr.

Also I need to work out how to get all this sticky stuff off. I wish I'd thought about it when the window was out.

To remove the high stop sticker you could try Prepsol or maybe the citrus based De-Sol-It, may have to let it soak to soften.
Title: Re: Build thread - Rob's Audi UR Quattro
Post by: RobClubley on June 15, 2016, 10:00:44 pm

If its on the glass, you just need acetone (borrow your wifes nail varnish remover!) and don't get it on the paint...
Otherwise I have removed stubborn stickers in the past using a razorblade/Stanley knife blade, but as you say need to be careful around the RWH

Re-fitted the front lights. Mostly because it's nicer to look at. They'll have to come out again to sort the wiring out. There are spare wires too.

I bought a rear plate frame with a reversing camera built in but I had to cut it down to fit. The screen is in the rear view mirror.
Adding some mod cons in as subtle a way as possible.

http://drivelife.co.nz/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/Robs-Audi-urquattro-Project-Rusty-4367.jpg

Some tidying was done of the driver's side wiring.

(http://drivelife.co.nz/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/Robs-Audi-urquattro-Project-Rusty-4370.jpg)


I couldn't face any more of the tangle under the dash so I started installing the loom for the new central locking.

(http://drivelife.co.nz/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/Robs-Audi-urquattro-Project-Rusty-4375.jpg)

It's almost long enough.

http://drivelife.co.nz/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/Robs-Audi-urquattro-Project-Rusty-4376-1.jpg

And I got the boot opening actuator installed. There happened to be two holes in the perfect spot.
It's all wired in with the relay in place, but I haven't worked out the fuse box connections yet so no live :D

Have no set timeframe at the moment - we are getting to the time of year where the weather is unsettled and even though the quattro will drive up a ski jump (apparently) I'm thinking August/September could be a go. One issue that really needs to be fixed is getting the wiper motor renovated ::)

No snow on skijumps at the moment anyway, but wipers definitely needed. Asking as I want to book my car in to get the cambelt and hydraulic lifters done, plus several other bits and bizzos, which Qualitat advise can be next week. If you were thinking to go next week I'd delay to join the run 😊

I got the passenger side locking actuator in. Went to do the driver's side one and the part that connects the lock to the mechanism was missing. No idea where I put it, so I pulled one out of the GT spare door, but it was a bit rusty.
So I made a replacement out of one of the spare bits from the locking kit. It took a few more revisions before it worked.

Wow, look at this wreck, sold for over GBP 8 grand!

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/AUDI-SPORT-UR-QUATTRO-COUPE-BARN-FIND-RESTORATION-PROJECT-RAREST-CLASSIC-/272283463883?hash=item3f655bf0cb%3Ag%3Ah5QAAOSwnNBXalpC&nma=true&si=q5p0BUICZCmO9p3Rb72tyg7siF0%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557


My non-wreck now has the central locking actuators all wired and fitted. Then I distracted myself from the wiring by re-fitting some of the external trim, then swearing copiously at the rear window trims.
No matter how much lube I used I could only get the stiff rod halfway into the crevice.

Sorry.

After nearly three hours of mucking about I got the other sunroof drain in place. I used a coathanger to get a small string in there, used that to pull through a rope, then used that to pull the pipe.
It looks a bit squished on the photo, will check that out.
I'm just about ready to get the head liner installed now, then the sunroof can go in.

My wife and daughter went to Disney On Ice, so I went to the garage :)

I re-fitted the dash.

(http://drivelife.co.nz/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/Robs-Audi-quattro-project-rusty4748.jpg)

(http://drivelife.co.nz/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/Robs-Audi-quattro-project-rusty4750.jpg)

Wipers are on after a trip to the plumbing shop for a rubber washer.

I tested all of the dash illumination and warning light bulbs. One was blown, two were missing.


Then got the stalks and dash in place
(http://drivelife.co.nz/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/Robs-Audi-quattro-project-rusty4757.jpg)

One of the light switches looked a bit worrying. Fortunately the one from the GT was fine.
(http://drivelife.co.nz/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/Robs-Audi-quattro-project-rusty4758.jpg)

The dash surround needed some work, and some glue, to get the switches in place so while that was setting I fitted the front windows.

The brackets are solid but had surface rust, so I cleaned them up and painted them.

I really should re-fit the battery and start testing this stuff.
Still finding little things to sort out, like the curiously large number of holes leading from the scuttle tray to the cabin.

Also looking at the state of the seatbelts I'm thinking of binning them and buying brand new. Both for looks and safety.
The only think that might make it tricky is that the universal ones all have an eye for a bolt at the bottom, and the quattro ones loop around a metal slidey bar.

Cheaper at least. But I'd rather get it done locally and guarantee fit. Plus get a local warranty. There's a place in Tawa called Kohl Road and Custom who have been around a while and do good work. They were talking about $650 ish to do all carpets including boot.

$650 sounds pretty good. The 20V floorpan is different to the MB and WR (as I discovered when I bought a set of mats from the UK!!)

Will let you know. I have a few more things to do before. I'd like to get the car driveable to get it down there.

Got the seatbelts on Friday so I decided to fit them today. I had to cut new holes in the rear shelf so they'd work properly - wondering if the GT had different holes to the quattro. I binned my original parcel shelf as it had big oval speaker holes in it, and this one was in way better condition. I thought they were identical, but apparently not.
(http://drivelife.co.nz/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/Robs-Audi-quattro-project-rusty4846.jpg)

The rear belts it came with - one is a Volvo one but looks identical to the other which has a VAG part number.

That would explain it, I was too lazy to go back into the house and get the key.

She tolerates it :) Mainly because she knows how much I love these cars.
She has realised how much it has cost so far though so now she's taking the "La la la not listening " approach to the budget.
Tempted to do that myself.

I ordered a set of tyres for the 18s from the local Bridgestone, as they have the monthly 30% off for buying four sale :)
Turned up this morning with the wheels and they said "Oh sorry we meant to call, they're on back order, no ETA."
Ah well I can wait. These wheel boxes have been in and out of the garage so many times!

Yeah the thought had occurred. That's why I made a new earth connection to the rear lights from an earth point. It's going to be a matter of taking the time to check and trace everything.

I have four days to get it to start again so I can move it out of the way for the house insulation installers.

Well the dash no longer flickers since I ran a new earth to the rear lights!

I re-fitted the door card on the driver's side after testing the window. I even got my daughter to help scrub it clean!


Back to the starting - I fixed the fuel pump - just a dodgy wire joint to the pump.
Still no start though.
Checked the wiring as best I could, looks okay I think. I even tried adding back the dodgy looking loop in the ignition wiring, no joy.
Tried the spare starter switch from the GT. Nope.
Found two blown fuses, changed them, no apparent difference.
But now the radiator fan runs all the time the ignition is on!
Two days to go!
Charging battery again just in case it's that. If not it might be time to investigate the starter itself.

Think I'm missing some script here in order to understand your plight.. The engine won't fire during cranking hence the fuel pump wiring diagnosis or the engine won't turn over on the starter hence the ignition switch swap and battery flat scenario..

Where are you at exactly? Fuel pump circuit or starter circuit delema as the two are independent.

It doesn't crank at all. Not a sausage from the starter motor.
Thinking of running a temporary wire bypassing the lot just to the starter as a work around so I can move the car this one time. I need it running as my drive is sloped on a bend, and carport is up a steep slope, so it wouldn't be safe or practical to push it.

Will have a better look tonight.

Fuel pump was a separate issue. :)

When the circuitry has been through a major upheaval, particularly in your case with the removal of spurious additions made over the years I always think that it pays to check each circuit seperately with a multimeter to ensure continuity and also to check for potential short circuits

Yeah I think you're right, I need to start pulling that mess apart and properly tracing everything. It'll probably be quicker in the longer run.
I was kinda hoping to test everything and hopefully leave some of it alone.

To test starter you can probably just run a jumper lead from your battery to the positive terminal on your starter it should crank and with the ignition turned on should start up?
I'm not sure so get someone else to confirm that it won't fry any thing

It took me ages to get the seat in place, then I realised the new seatbelt was stopping it from going in. So there's some modification to do there.

Tempted to drive it down to Kohl before I do much more, and get the carpet made.

When I fitted the driver's seat I found out that the new seatbelt rubbed as the seat moved. I tried the various brackets that came with the kit but wasn't happy with it, so I popped the new one apart and was happy to find that it bolts together. Next job was to drill out the rivet holding the original one, trim the metal very slightly and attach the new head to the old bracket.

Good news! I drained and re-filled the power steering fluid, and fired up the quattro. It seems to have cured that horrible buzzing noise from the pump. Yay!

I'm now trying to decide what to do next. Tempted to work on the brake lights and indicators then drive it down the road to get a carpet made.
I like the idea of getting the interior all done. It'd help with some of the wiring too, having somewhere to connect it to in the centre console.

Woot!

Just drove my quattro for the first time :) Got into third gear briefly. Speedo reads zero all the time. Steering still noisy. It got a bit damp in the rain and has no passenger window at the moment.

But the best bit is it beeps the horn randomly. Must be the slip ring I modified on the new wheel. Not the best when you're trying to be incognito in a car that's not road legal. But funny :)

Went for a bit of quattro therapy time and started on the wiring.

It's such an epic tangle with wires crossing and going from one bundle to another that I've given up on the idea of making it look neat. I've un-knotted it as much as I can. It'll be hidden away anyway. So as long as it works and is safe, that's my goal!

I was intending to sort out the diff lock switch but all the guides say I should have a red pipe and I don't. So another thing that has been altered or replaced.
Also the diagram I have doesn't actually say which pipe goes in which hole. I just found this, which should help a lot along with the diagrams.

Out of the garage for a little bit. Apologies for mucky paint. Holding out until I'm ready for Finer Details NZ to clean and make it look awesome.

I created a bit of a problem with the sun visors when I fitted the bigger rear view mirror which contains the screen for the reversing camera. So I asked Kohl Rod & Custom Ltd to modify the visors from the GT donor car, reshaping and re-covering them. They did a lovely job. Problem solved.

Reverse, tail and brake lights working.

Rubbish adhesive supplied with my centre brake light, it fell off as soon as the car moved. Need to make up some sort of bracket for it.

Also Kohl re-covered this bit so I screwed it back on.

I also started sorting out some power bits for the remote locking. Got it connected to permanent live and the remote locking works. Well the passenger side does, driver's door does nothing and that's the one I've got all the covers fully fitted on. I bet a wire is disconnected.

Boot unlock also does nothing, need to check that.

Traced the right cables for the immobiliser module, just need to wire it in now.

I spent an hour working on some wiring today, mostly for the alarm/immobiliser. Didn't finish it but it's certainly immobilised as it won't start at all now :D
More to do. Central locking half works, of course the door that doesn't is the one I've put the trims back on. And the boot actuator isn't working either.
I did get the reversing camera fully working, which is cool.
And fitted a replacement handbrake light switch. The original one exploded.
I wish I had more time!

Great to see the progress with you WR, I check it out every day.

I need the left hand headlight 'body' just the plastic, not the lens or the reflector parts.
The one that is in my RR has 2 broken mounting attachment parts/clips.
Not sure if you would have one from your 'donor' car but I ask you if you can help.

I wasn't convinced those wheels were going to work so well when you first started talking about them. But they have actually turned out bloody well. Good choice!

I installed a little fuse board for the various devices which need a switched live. And tidied the wiring up a bit. Not much I can do about that massive bundle as it's so tangled together.

I replaced the wind screen washer tubing at the weekend in the RR.
Check if your WR has 2 Small clips near the bonnet 'vents' that will hold the tubing against the bonnet. If they are there thread the tubing through them for a neater installation and then pass the tube  through the the reinforcing and exit through the smallest hole next to the hinge bracket.  The tube then runs down the top of the mudguard next to the bonnet release cable to the ww pump. (All is then 'hidden')

I hope this helps, I can send some images if you need them

Pics would be helpful yes. Pretty sure I don't have those clips.


I realised when I moved it that something is stopping the car from rolling smoothly, most likely a stuck brake caliper.
Other than that I need to fix the passenger window as it's really stiff in the tracks, put the bottom of the dash back together, and sort out the wiring to the headlights which has been re-done to provide better voltage, but the sidelights don't work, headlights seem to be on full beam only and one foglight only works with full beam, the other works with sidelights or headlights.

Hi Rob if its any consolation or to determine a baseline, all the lights worked okay and correctly.  I didn't play with the wiring or relays that (presumably) Richard installed though - just sorted earths and replaced a couple of bulbs I think.

Yes you need good thighs to push it around - the front left brake caliper sticks. Didn't determine whether it was the caliper or a hose.  Replacing all hoses was a no-brainer anyway so hadn't worried too much about it.  Try new hoses and fluid change first... :)

It's probably my plugging-in of wires that has confused things. :D
New hoses are on the list. I have discs and pads ready to change.

I just used double-sided sticky tape, as that's what they were held on with before. Hopefully it will hold!

I was really happy to receive my shiny brand new passenger door handle yesterday. I thought I'd pop down to the garage for ten minutes and fit it. 90 minutes later...
It looks the same as the old one but the lock barrel is thinner so I can't swap over my old lock. And it doesn't quite line up properly, so it catches. So it'll have to come off again for adjustment. It's never simple is it?

I bought a new boss for the steering wheel, hoping it would solve my horn-beeping problem, but I have bought the wrong one. Doh. I went back to my modified one and added some screws. Might do the trick.

Also spent another hour trying to sort out the front lights. I worked out the problem with the fogs, they are correct now. There's a dodgy connection on one main beam light which I need to repair, and the sidelights still aren't right but I'm getting there!

Mystery solved! I plugged in the stalk from the GT and got dipped beam. There's an obvious click when pulling it forward which the quattro one doesn't have. Just need to take the steering wheel off again and either fix mine our swap to the spare.

More little things - alarm and remote locking is working and indicators are connected now.

In other news, all lights are now working. I swapped the hazard switch for a spare and the hazards work now, but the indicators still don't flash, just come on solid. I traced a few things and found out a few things it isn't :)

Working on brakes is hard work! Guess which one was stuck on.
List of parts needed is growing. At least one c.v. boot, bump stops. Abs cables maybe, brake lines, and probably hard lines as I think I've damaged one trying to get the brake lines off.

Feeling a bit disheartened tonight, got some flare spanners for the brake lines, went down to try them and the nuts are so rounded that the spanners won't even go on.
Then I had a look around under the car and as I was thinking it looked to be in a bit of a depressing state I spotted some rust, which when I poked it turned out to be quite a big hole that was somehow missed during the repairs.
I thought I was close to the point where I might be able to drive the car, but it's nowhere near, and the future holds much more spending. Sigh.

If it were me I'd drop the lot, pull all of the susp out and start a fresh. Sure there's parts to be bought but a lot of it will be cleaning and painting which come WOF time will make it all worth it.
Chip away bit by bit you'll get there.

Yeah and it sat for over ten years, half of that outside.

I think it's more having to admit to myself that it's going to be a lot longer than I hoped. I obviously had my rose tinted specs on when I first looked under there :D
So, I'm resigned to driving a 275,000km Mazda for the foreseeable future.

I am going to pull out the lot, it's the only way to make sure it's right and avoid doing it all again later.

That exhaust looks like it's toast too. This is on my Christmas list but Santa's out of cash this year!!

Oh and I found someone who can apparently supply replacement OEM ABS looms. Over $600 each and there are four. Pretty sure just the outer insulation is gone so that'll be a repair job :D

Does the ABS sensors cable supplier have a website.? Be interested in investigating this.

Hey Rod here is a suggestion for you………The most cost effective performance/handling improvement you can add to any ur quattro is a left foot brace on the transmission tunnel next to the clutch pedal.
This is essential when the quattro is equipped with ’slippery’ leather seats as your is.
I made mine of folded aluminium and used 6mm cap screws to attach to 6mm ’nutserts’ fitted to the transmission tunnel
I will post some images for you in next few days

Would appear your up for engine mounts here. The offside mount over time gets cooked due to proximity of turbo and exhaust down pipe causing the mount to collapse.  As a result the engine drops and the down pipe generally comes to rest on the front subframe.
Title: Re: Build thread - Rob's Audi UR Quattro
Post by: RobClubley on January 01, 2017, 04:29:31 pm
I've already bought new engine mounts, subframe bushes, front rollbar bushes, wishbone bushes, strut top mounts, rear diff mount.
Need to check gearbox mounts, though I might as well just replace them with everything else I'm doing.
Everything's so corroded, I need to suss out what to keep and what to replace. And what I can replace!
Got one strut out at last!
(https://scontent.fakl1-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/15780800_929123907187906_1717035101174142220_n.jpg?oh=3394191fb54b0da124befbdacf2a4340&oe=58DCE22B)

Rear struts are ready to come out but the shafts are rusted into the hubs I think. They're not budging anyway. The fronts came loose with a quick tap. Rears not so much!

The exhaust bolts will need cutting off I think. And I'm buggered if I can get the driver side steering rod ball joint to split.
I haven't tried heating anything yet, though. I'm doing this in 30-60 minute chunks when I can sneak down to the garage :D

So yeah the parts list is growing.
I need to buy some more stands to hold up the gearbox while I remove the subframe. The subframe is in a bit of a state, dented and rusty and filthy. Once that's off I can get a better look at the engine mounts and exhaust/downpipe, none of which look very convincing.
I think the GT subframe was in better condition but I won't know until I compare them whether they're the same part.

Almost all of the the brake lines look pretty corroded. I hope they are possible to sort out without removing the engine!!

About the same from ECS, but their set of four lists all rears for some reason. The look the same but part numbers are different so I assume the fronts are stiffer to cope with engine weight.

That's a fair bit of rust from one corner's suspension.

Front subframe is off.
I was kinda hoping the GT subframe might be the same as it's in a bit better condition, but as that was a a KV engine car with an auto, the gearbox mounts are different.

Rob I'd cut the mounts off the other frame and swap them over if the other frame is in better nick.

Starting to clean up the subframe and remove the old bushes. Two just popped out. Two were rusted in and took some time. and "persuasion".
Lots more cleaning to do but it's actually in decent condition under all the gunk and oily mess.

I've been doing a bit of online shopping. New lower ball joints, drop links, wheel bearings, gearbox mounts (034 street density performance ones) are on the way.
Shocks will be ordered when I'm a bit closer to needing them. Need to try and spread out my spending :D
And a short shifter kit accidentally fell into my 034 Motorsports basket. On back order though so no idea on ETA.
The dubious milestone of $30k total spend has been passed.
Relatives land in NZ tomorrow, so there probably won't be much progress until Feb.

Takas (slowburn) dropped these off, thanks mate. I don't want the car too low so I'll fit them and see how she sits. Hard to tell when they're not compressed but out of the car they don't look too much lower.

Sigh. Managed to drop the sealing washer from one of the banjo bolts on the fuel line. Of course it didn't come out of the bottom. Will have to take the airbox back out to look for it.

So instead of doing that I made a rubber flap thingy.

Just do an Ohm continuity test on each one with a multi meter before you install them. The sensors themselves are normally around 1000ohm each.

Looking at shocks now, it seems the fronts are either 50mm or 55mm diameter. Will measure tonight and find out which I have. Bilstein B6 are the ones I'm, going for. I've asked a few NZ suppliers for pricing. I'd like to buy locally but not if there's the 50-300% "being in New Zealand" tax.

Dammit just when I think I've made a decision :D
Also I'm now not sure which I need. The outside of both my front and rear struts - i.e. the bit that the shock cartridge slots into not the shock itself - is 55mm so I assume that's the dimension they're referring to.

Quattroforum.com post from 2010 from a 'local'....bazilNZ....do you know him? I think he had something to do with carbon bits as I recall.

"At the end of the day the question is - are Koni any good for the quattro? - and the answer is absolutely yes, very good. The BOGE are a soggy mess. Night and day between these and Koni. The Bilstein are also very good, but they are very firm and have no adjustment.

This won't help in your decision making either, but it's experience. On my WR 20 yrs ago I had Bilsteins put it, springs too. Was then a really hard ride, slightly too harsh I felt, but better cornering for certain. When it came time for me to have the bushes and shocks replaced in my MB I scoured through quattroforum and the consensus there was Konis are the way to go, so I did. I have set of Konis in now, the ride is harder, no huge improvement. The standard shocks I had in previously felt a lot nicer ride, and the only real improvement seemed to be in turning - it felt as if it was slightly more direct. Suggest doing springs too, at the age of the car. When the suspension work was done on the MB I were told replacing the springs would be pointless. So I didn't, and regret that.

I'm going to go for the Bilsteins. Speed.co.nz can supply them for a very reasonable $1150 delivered. I'm happy with that, knowing there's no mucking about with import duty, and I have a local company to go back to with any issues.
Title: Re: Build thread - Rob's Audi UR Quattro
Post by: FFS on March 10, 2017, 05:58:17 pm
I quite liked the Bilsteins, I'm not sure my Konis are set up right, there feels a bit too much upward bounce. I think I've told the story before, but here goes again. I got my Bilsteins in a bunch of stuff for $200 through the old Trade and Exchange magazine. Including brake calipers, discs, stub axles, springs, subframes, plus other bits and pieces. I didn't really know what  were buying, just thought I'd hoover it up while it was available. They seller had bought them for a kit car, and said they'd come from a Treser quattro, of which owner had two. All the suspension parts looked great, clean, almost like new. I stacked them away then one morning driving into Hamilton a stub axle on my car fell out of sorts with the suspension leg. Horrible grinding sounds. I got the car to a Hamilton workshop and said I'd bring the other bits in to see if anything was any good to replace the broken bit. Was it ever, when they saw it they swapped the lot out for mine, minus the subframes. Ride height was dropped with the new springs (from the early WR height to the later WR height), and those Bilsteins were so firm on the road. I eventually sold that urq and some time after sold the remaining suspension bits (to onthebogalot). You are going to enjoy your car, for certain Rob, - a hugely admirable effort on your part.

The Toy Shop Wellington are doing a great job on my struts, having to use some creative methods to get them apart after the wheel bearing refused to shift with 10 tonnes of pressure.
It appears I supplied two correct wheel bearings and two wrong ones. Doh. They're sorting some correct ones out for me.

the wheel bearing refused to shift with 10 tonnes of pressure.


I always find that a bit frightening, especially if standing nearby

10 tonnes is surely plenty although I've had to go to 12 or so once on a bearing.  Always makes you jump when it finally lets go.

As an aside I have Bilsteins on the A4 (ex TWoTV) and theyre wonderful.  That's since you drove it FFS...

Got the brake hard lines out from each corner. The front to back one is okay but the connections to the flexis were all rusted and rounded and I had to saw them off.

(https://scontent.fakl1-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t31.0-8/17359097_991318430968453_7163569958808346545_o.jpg?oh=9769da979533c9619c61506ae347ab49&oe=5959D00B)

I've nearly got everything removed now, I need to start putting things back on!
Rear subframe still needs removing, need to buy bushes for it as I only ordered enough for one subframe for some reason!
I moved my jack stands and had to set them higher, then the car felt a bit wobblier than I liked so I moved them back and decided to find a better way to support it. I'm sure it would be fine but I like to make sure it's rock solid before I get under there.

Rob find a set of big wooden blocks - I use what I think was a post from a highway guardrail I found years ago.  Might even be worth going to a post yard to see whats available.  They feel a lot more secure than fully extended stands.  Either that or just have one end of the car raised.

I think I still have some macrocarpa sleeper offcuts somewhere.

First attempt at making a brake hard line. The pipe flaring tool worked well.

Should have bought a bigger puller.

Made a start on the first of the CV joints - got one degreased and partly re-assembled. I would have done both ends if I'd bought a big enough puller!

I also took the cup thingies off the gearbox, cleaned them up and re-fitted, and moved the jack stands at the back so I can get the rear subframe out for cleanup and new bushes.

Then it's brake lines, sort out the exhaust heat insulation which is hanging off - and have a look under it to check for rustyness.
And I should be able to get the rear fully re-assembled.

I thought the subframe was the last part that needed to come off. But I noticed that the fuel line has been rubbing on the rear diff mount and is this close to going through. Better sort that out then!! Imagine filling it up and losing 80l of fuel, not to mention the fire/explosion risk.

This is the fuel line from tank to fuel pump. It has been rubbing the rear sub frame mount The dash gauge told me the tank was just about empty, so I got my five litre container and started to drain the tank. 24 litres and a bit of a spill later...
The whole house still smells of petrol.

Had a day off work today so I got a few hours with the quattro.
Making brake lines takes ages! Got them all in place now, hopefully I make them properly.

I also cleaned up the rear subframe and slapped some paint on it.

Then suddenly it was 3pm and time to pick up the child from school!

I have a new rear mount for the rear diff, but it needs to be pressed in, and three of the bolts holding the bracket on are rounded off and rusted in. Sigh. So the rear diff needs to come off to get it done. Gives me the chance to clean it up I guess.

Hammering an old imperial socket on them did the trick, combined with my 12v impact gun.

Rear drive shafts cleaned up. They're not in bad condition, under the muck. Need to collect some bits from The Toy Shop Wellington who have been pressing things in and out for me, then I can bolt some stuff back on.

Picked up my stuff from The Toy Shop Wellington. Various bushings pressed in and out. I had to strip and re-assemble one of the cv joints. It wouldn't move properly because I'd assembled it incorrectly.

So I ordered a pair of new ones manufactured by Quattro Corner in the UK.
I also finally gave in and ordered a few things from Audi Tradition. Waiting for the call to pay duty on that stuff.

These look more like it! Thanks to speed.co.nz for getting them to me super quickly.

Bit of progress this weekend.
Connected up the brake lines, torqued up the front driveshaft bolts, repaired and fitted the rear left driveshaft, broke off the corroded shielding on the ABS sensors, re-wrapped and re-fitted them, replaced a broken wire to the rear diff, not sure what it does (yet), looked at a few other things and pondered them :D

I thought I'd better clean this out..

That's awesome. I wish I had the time, money and patience to do it to that level.

Last night I decided to put some brake fluid in mine. Got the master cylinder and bias valve bled then went to do the right rear and fluid started leaking from the left rear. I hadn't crimped it properly and it hadn't sealed. So I ended up cutting the end off the hard line and re-crimping it while brake fluid dripped out all over my hands and tools. Got it to seal and did the other side but now I can't get any fluid out of the rear left caliper so I think I may have managed to seal it completely somehow!!

Finished bleeding the brakes. Need to do it one more time with an assistant to double check.
Also filled up the coolant and power steering fluid.

Fitted the new fuel tank to pump hose. Doing it like this seems to make sense and I didn't need to cut it. Need to sort out the clips and stuff to make them better.

Dark tips correct - most like original.
"bit more expensive" is worth avoiding the hassle now with the GST/custom fees that are wacked on.

It's not just GST you have to pay - you have to go through a customs agent and they charge a frickin fee on top.

Are you using a pressure bleeder or doing it the old fashioned way?
I used a pressure bleeder on my Legacy and it made the job really simple even for a 1 man job. No issues with the pedal pressure creating bubbles.

Bleeding the brakes on an Audi ur-quattro

Procedure:

Use DoT 4 specification brake fluid.
Before starting any work, ensure that all brake bleed nipples can be moved.
If at all possible, use proper flare nut spanners on each bleed nipple.
11mm on master cylinder - occasionally 10mm.
9mm on brake proportioning valve (below master cylinder) - flare nut socket useful as space is limited
11mm on each caliper - sometimes 7mm.
Optionally remove the brake light bulbs from the rear light clusters - the current drain is considerable
Depress the brake pedal at least twenty times or until the pedal goes hard. Optionally check that the low hydraulic pressure warning switch (WR - below accumulator, MB/RR - diagonally mounted on brake servo) has closed
Remove cap on brake fluid reservoir. Optionally check that the brake fluid level warning switch in the cap closes - this is now a common failure point and a safety issue. The brake fluid reservoir should NOT be topped up during normal service - the falling level is a good indicator of pad wear and the level alarm will trigger before the pads are completely worn.
If changing fluid completely (every two years) drain brake fluid from reservoir using a syphon (brake fluid is poisonous) or a MityVac pump, open caliper bleed nipples in turn and pump fluid out with brake pedal.
Attach a pressure system such as a VAG 1238/1 or Gunson Eezibleed (2 to 2.5 bar) to the master cylinder reservoir - Note 1
Use either the pedal depressor shipped with the 1238/1 or a broom braced against the driver's headrest to hold the brake pedal depressed.
Bleed the system in the following order:
Master cylinder.
Proportioning valve (check for leaks on the front of the valve).
Rear right caliper.
Rear left caliper.
Front right caliper.
Front left caliper.
At least 500ml of brake fluid must pass down each line.
9mm and 11mm spanners or specialist brake spanners (e.g., Williams Superslim) are required. Recently shipped (2007) calipers sometimes have 7mm bleed nipples. Access to the 9mm bleed nipple on the proportioning valve is restricted. For the Coupe quattro, an 11mm Crowfoot socket is optimal.

Note 1: The technique described above uses a pressure bleeder as documented in Audi's repair guidelines. This not the only and perhaps not even the best way to do it - Audi's aim was to make it a one-man operation to save service costs. However, it is perfectly possible to bleed quattro brakes the conventional way by depressing the pedal with the relevant bleed nipple open, closing the bleed nipple, releasing the brakes and repeating the procedure. This obviously requires an assistant operating either the brake pedal or the bleed nipple.

It's possible to make up a device to save the need for repeated opening and closing of the bleed nipple:

Obtain a 30cm length of thick-walled hose to fit tightly over the bleed nipple
With a very sharp instrument such as a razor blade or scalpel, cut a slit along the length of the tube about 1cm long ending about 1cm from one end of the tube
Block that end of the tube with a screw or bolt
Place the blocked end in a suitable receptacle such as a jam jar
Attach the other end of the tube to the bleed nipple
Open the bleed nipple and pump the brakes slowly, keeping an eye on the brake fluid reservoir level. The slit acts as a one-way valve - when brake fluid is forced down the tube the slit opens to allow it into the jar; when the pressure is released the slit closes and no fluid or air can get back into the system. When sufficient fluid has been forced through (Audi recommend 500ml per caliper) close the bleed nipple.

Bit of a frustrating afternoon working on the car today. I realised I can't get the front left wheel to turn so investigated that and found that the brake caliper is stuck on. I thought it was all okay but it looks like I'm going to have to remove it and re-check it.

I removed the bonnet locking pins to clean them up and paint them as they're rusty and have been bothering me.

(https://scontent.fakl1-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t31.0-8/19143868_1060407977392831_2628961315444985921_o.jpg?oh=f3cf596c6c608d4eca0c05de182c4c0f&oe=59E2EE86)

Then I noticed the power steering fluid all over the place. Bugger. It's slowly weeping from the banjo bolt I removed to drain it when I fixed the anti-vibration mounts on the pressure accumulator thingy. Hardly any has made it to the floor, it's all sitting on various brackets and surfaces in the engine. Need to get some new washers I think, drain it again, clean it and re-seal.

Then I decided to look at the passenger side window. I never did get it closing properly. After some investigation I've declared the aftermarket regulator I bought to be useless.
So I need to either source an OEM regulator (rare as unicorn poo) or try and make one good one from the new motor and original vertical bit.

Appears Milltek have changed the quattro pattern as the system I have uses the original exhaust mount brackets to secure the muffler. Certainly no drilling of the boot floor required. Also the twin tail pipes are welded in place.  Probably production efficiency and made to be more universal across more model applications.

I took the digital dash apart a bit to find that voltage regulator that I'm told might be the cause of the flickering. Yeah that's beyond my soldering skills. Need to find someone who can help with it.

Also Takas (slowburn) popped around with a G60 caliper for the passenger side. Hero. Got it cleaned up and painted and ready to fit tomorrow.

Then if that's all good I can get the car back on its wheels.

 Some good bits in there - lots of door handles, a brand new chrome trim for one, fuel pump and filters, lots of window switches, couple of (I think) 80 rear window regulators, some fasteners, a few KV engine parts,

super sweet,good work man....did they say what they are having trouble with?


Initial diagnosis was:

Quote
Basically a high voltage break down is happening here ether A : the transformers isolation is breaking down at its High operation voltage and sparking over thus showing it to stop or B: the mosfet drivers that switch the high voltage on the circuit are not getting full saturation and failing
Get Electronic
fixing the issue : i would start to replace the Fets (mostfets) first due too them normally being off the shelf components and the eaisist to replace quickly without trying to get the original transformer that would be ncely priority and only made by audi or rather by contract to audi  and in nothing elce so supply would be hard to get.

After a couple of weeks:
Quote
The flickering cause is still undetermined
Possibly won't be able so fix, especially if in the main micro processor
going to try jam in my own Clock signal to run the displays thats the next step
thanks for your patience too !
never expected this one to be such a troublesome unit

the older stuff is usually much more harder to repair
ICs that need replacement are no longer available to change over as parts anymore
were seeing this from about 1997 and below

There was a guy on S2Forum a while ago that had both amber and green clusters.  Maybe try a post on there?

Yeah their search is bad and it likes to change part numbers that you search for. I found that to my cost when I searched for a RHD part and the search "corrected" it to the equivalent LHD part but the photo was small so I didn't realise.

There are amber clusters on Ebay - for 999 Euro!!

I'll pursue all repair options before I look at replacement. There's a guy in Ireland reckons he can fix it if Get Electronic fail to do so. I'm reluctant to post it that far but if he can fix it it'll be worth the risk.

I still have the GT one. Some modification would be required as there's no speedo cable for the digi dash.
Surely someone in New Zealand must have the skills to repair 80's technology?
The guy in Ireland reckons he might be able to get his hands on another one. That's an option which would probably not be far off the cost of sending + repairing.
If I have to involve him I'll be paying duty and GST and postage on the way in, unless I take a risk and under-insure it.

Repairing the original feels like the best thing to do though.

While I'm waiting for my instrument cluster to come back I've started to think about the stereo. At some point in the past this car had a pretty serious stereo install - for its time - but when I got the car the speakers were falling apart and wiring was a mess so I ripped it all out. So I need to start from scratch wiring in a new stereo. I got an 80s Blaupunkt tape desk with the car, which I hope works!

I'm going to get component speakers for the front doors, and I'm planning to install the tweeters where the tiny factory dash speakers were. I have two speakers with holes drilled like this from the previous tweeter install, and two perfect ones so the design of tweeter I get depends on which I use. I might be able to retain one of the factory speakers just for the voice module when I get that working.

Preserve the factory tape deck so it looks and works as normal
Add Bluetooth music streaming

Be invisible in normal use
Provide an output for a second amp and sub when needed

Rob, looking at your red interior pics from much earlier. In your research along the way have you come across the Michelle Mouton Edition coupe quattros? Looks like your urq may have come specced with that interior perhaps? I saw a code sticker on one on the net, it has code 97. Thought I'd mention it as I'd never known of the Michelle Mouton edition cars till yesterday.

I have a few options - a friend of a friend in Wellington is my first option - he apparently does scratch built car dashboards, so we'll see what he can do.

There are a couple of people on the urq Facebook groups who have spare green dashes - price unknown.
Or I could change to an orange one from the later cars - but the two on Ebay are over 900 pounds. Gulp.

Then there are a couple of people I've fired off emails to who are experts on these dashes but one is in UK, the other in Ireland.

So as usual with Rusty there's no cheap or simple option.

It's working! Found someone local who can fix 80s PCBs. (Thanks Fraser for the tip).
There were two main problems, a leaking capacitor and a cracked wire in one ribbon cable. He's going to replace the other capacitors just in case.

Cleaning up the trim that goes below the steering wheel and holds the ECU. There are holes drilled in the underneath where presumably a car phone was once fitted. Seems like a good place to install my bass controller knob. I'm still not sure if I'll install a sub, but it's easier to install the wiring now.

There's foam around the edges of the glass vacuum tube displays in the dash to keep dust out, which had turned into a sticky mess. This was my solution.

This is the view of the throttle linkage is from passenger footwell correct.?

Appears the rubber bush has disintegrated hence the cable tie.

I don't think this rubber bush is not longer available.

Started on the install. I used my original speakers to mount the tweeters which already had holes drilled in them from a previous install. Not happy with it like this though, especially the passenger side.

Yes they do. Though they should be screwed in from underneath :D
I have two sets - one with the holes drilled in them and one perfect set. I thought I'd try it this way first. I like the idea of the raised base directing the sound towards the passenger compartment.

Bleeding the brakes again. Found two slow leaks on the right side of the car - might explain the squashy pedal.

(https://scontent.fakl1-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t31.0-8/21949920_1137407323026229_3395371116213546098_o.jpg?oh=f6682f9a077f6a85374b35736ffb556e&oe=5A500036)

Went for a drive around the block. Nothing fell off. Nobody died. Though there were some interesting suspension clunks when entering the angled drive. And the speedo worked for a second then read zero the whole time. Brakes were not great but improving as I went, so starting to bed in I guess. It was very loud! The wife said she heard the whole thing from inside the house.

Still trying to get the speedo to work, last thing I think before WOF time. I located the speed sensor and it has a fair bit of corrosion on the connections. had a go at cleaning it but I was rushing a bit and I don't think I did a good enough job :D
Will extract it tonight if I get chance and clean it properly.

After it's on the road it's going to Finer Details to get a serious 25 hour prep and ceramic coat.

I wouldn't be doing ceramic coating.
No question when done (as long as the paint prep is perfect) they are brilliant. They resist swirling and have that "I've just been waxed" look without work.

But you CAN get that look by polishing/waxing - it takes time and work. You can remove swirls with the right tool and polishes. And shed time with your favourite classic isn't really work  :D

The problem with ceramics is that if you plan on keeping the car long term, you will eventually get marks/swirls, and then you have a problem. Because the ceramic is integrated into the paint and extremely hard, refinishing is problematic.

I wouldn't do a classic car in ceramic.
I might do a car I was keeping for less than 2-3 years and I was too busy to wash/wax regularly.

Hi,id avoid the ceramic coating,and stay with natural wax,as the paint needs feeding from the wax(carnauba,bees wax etc..no silicone) the ceramic coating most likely with prevent it....and watch out for sunscreen as it eats into the clear coat!

Sent the driver side tie rod off to HBI Engineering for the ball joint to be rebuilt. Then I can re-fit that, adjust the exhaust, and drive the car to bed the brakes in a bit more and get a quote on fixing that rusty hole in the sill.

How did the people doing the other body repairs miss that rusty piece?

I have no idea! It's directly below one of the holes in the bodywork so should have been obvious.
I do recall a discussion that we wouldn't fully strip and repaint the underside, but that all the holes needed to be fixed. Maybe they took that to mean ignore the underside and don't check it. I don't know.
It got to the point where I think they wanted it done and out of there despite them having had it for months before starting it.

It will remain a mystery!

Haven't had a lot of time to work on Rusty this weekend but it's back on its wheels with working steering. Plus I picked up this little gadget as the battery seems to be draining itself far too quickly. Might be a worn out battery or something draining it, not sure yet. You can Bluetooth to it from a phone to monitor battery charge.

Rob, you will have to check the standby current draw. Get a digital multimeter and set it to 10A DC scale (DC symbol can look like a straight line with 3 small dashes under it, AC is the sign wave squiggle) and move the red lead to the (10A) jack (or hole). Disconnect the negative terminal from the battery (I would replace that cable for a pre made heavy duty one, it looks dodgy) and connect your multimeter leads in between the battery post and lead. Your reading should be no more than 0.06 amps. The lead may spark and current draw start off high and quickly drop back, this is just capacitors in radios etc charging up.  If the current draw is excessive start pulling fuses with battery power on them until the current draw goes away, then your problem is on that circuit. Maybe first start looking at the accessories that you have fitted. A good one is getting the radio red acc and yellow batt wires around the wrong way.

Thanks for that I will try this when I get some time to tinker. The head unit had permanent/switched lives the wrong way around so I fixed that.
And yes now you mention it, that negative wire is dodgy, will swap it for one of the nice shiny new ones I was looking at the other day.

I think from memory my Ur was pulling 250 mAmps with the ignition off. This is due to the stereo and alarm.
My battery would go flat over a period of a few weeks if not charged too.
I should re check the current draw just to re confirm.

As for the battery - it's drawing 0.04-0.06 amps at standby, and in five minutes where all I did was unlock and lock the car a couple of times, test the boot light, and run the interior light it went from 41% to 26% charged. Time for a new one I think!

Slightly improved weight distribution due to whopping big new battery. Need to work out a way of strapping it down.

i spent ages going around various Super Cheaps and Repcos trying to find a battery with terminals the same way as my existing one then realised when I got home that all I would have needed to do was flip it around and the wires would have reached. What a muppet.

Hey Rob that battery cable looks better. There should be a plastic lip at the bottom of the battery and hopefully a M8 threaded hole in the bottom of the battery box. Most euro's have a plate and bolt to hold the battery down.

There's nothing to fasten a battery holder on to, for some reason. Might get the body shop to weld on some tags when it's there for that rust repair on the sill.

So the speedo repair didn't work, read zero the whole time. Need to investigate that more.
I've booked the car in for rust repair soon, plus a wheel alignment and re-bleed of the brakes this Saturday. The brakes are really spongy and I've bled them twice. WIll get a pro to do them :D

There seems to be an issue with idling once warmed up, revs drop way down and the car stalls.

Other than that it feels so good to drive it! It makes an amazing noise, steering feels good, it makes me grin :D

On a GT coupe I had I lay on the driveway a whole afternoon, trying to bleed the damn things brakes every which way with so little success I was just about sobbing with the frustration of it in the end. I had never encountered such a vitriole-and-cuss-inducing brake job in my life, and haven't experienced one since. It was a wheel cylinder which I think (from a memory tainted with hate and the red mist of anger) I had put a kit in myself and obviously stuffed up. Pulled, had an expert do the thing. Success. I think you taking it to a brake shop is a good idea. And you now know why!
Title: Re: Build thread - Rob's Audi UR Quattro
Post by: Audidude on November 01, 2017, 12:11:52 pm
I did some reading around the brake system when I had a bad master cylinder in need of replacement. It's bl**dy complicated and is linked to the power steering for some reason! Probably to stop muppets like me playing with it!

This from the UK quattro Network:

"On the MB and RR Audi ur-quattros, a tandem pump provides both steering and brake assist.  The rear part of the pump is a standard power steering pump fed by a translucent header tank.  A small internal hole feeds a small amount of oil into the front section of the pump which uses two tiny pistons driven by an eccentric to supply high pressure hydraulic oil for the brake assist system.  The smaller of the three hoses coming from the pump goes to the brake pressure accumulator which contains a built-in regulator.

etc etc etc"

They could have just copied a good Japper setup, like Honda.

Anyway, I found two reconditioned ones in England and Germany for about $700 landed here, then found an Audi 100 one in US with exact same part no for $150 brand new landed here :)

Got the work done by a Euro specialist in Hamilton - he charged bugger all. He also fixed a leaking clutch master as well.

Perfect brakes now. And I don't have to keep topping up the clutch reservoir.

Going in for wheel alignment, brakes bleeding and exhaust alignment.
I've bled the brakes twice and they're still spongy, time for a pro to do them. Exhaust alignment because them doing it on a ramp is much easier than me laying on my back under the car.

Well, a few things but one big one is some doof doof noises. And of course something to make them work, as the Out of Sight Audio device is winging its way back to the US because of a loud hissing noise problem.
Anyway I happen to have a rather nice 10" sub in my garage which I want to install somewhere. Of course anything like this must be reversible, so I got the spare side trim out, from the GT donor car, to work out how it might fit.
There's a big space inside those lovely box flares which really wants to be a bass box :)

Sealed would be much easier to integrate into the car so I'm tempted to go for that. It sounded great in a sealed MDF box in the Skoda :)

Looking at the you would be looking at band pass enclosure for rock. Not really something you can do when you are in a tight spot. Plus you need more space. 0.5 for sealed, 0.75 for vented and lofty full 1ft3 for a bandpass enclosure. I recon just stick with a well insulated sealed enclosure. Unless of course you put in an MDF parcel shelf and cut a hole in that. Infinite baffle. Then you can just slide the original one back in when you want it back to stock. Plus you can mount a pair of 6x9s in there and the amp underneath.
flush mount the lot, then acoustic carpet over the top so it's all invisible when the boot is closed.

In most cars maybe. But the quattro has a metal (structural) parcel shelf, metal behind the seat back and a large fuel tank between the two.

I went with a sealed MDF box in the back of the Skoda because I'm more comfortable working with wood/MDF. Tempted to go the same way here as I'm not sure if I want to get into the mess/fumes/fibres/time of doing a fibreglass enclosure. Given that it will all be hidden from view :D Of course it will weigh more. Hmm.

I did a bit more playing with the sub tonight. I looked into doing a fibreglass enclosure but I really don't want to get into that much mess, fumes and time! So:
Step one - make a CAD template (Cardboard Aided Design, thanks Project Binky!)
(https://scontent.fakl1-2.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t31.0-8/23593393_1175987025834925_8620444388090947051_o.jpg?oh=278d7d9d29c87c7a860823f0a51f3f9c&oe=5A945D7A)
Step 2, cut a piece of leftover MDF to shape.
(https://scontent.fakl1-2.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t31.0-8/23632377_1175987032501591_8200531288858684034_o.jpg?oh=4e98cbea40935cb64a70336940d0d5f6&oe=5A9A8B5C)

(https://scontent.fakl1-2.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t31.0-8/23467394_1175987029168258_2734735240328579869_o.jpg?oh=c83c7c8c32509ff00676ddbc589a1e37&oe=5A92E3F3)

(https://scontent.fakl1-2.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/23471933_1175987095834918_6261330162064014464_n.jpg?oh=ab367f037f750bfee4f083cfba90f8e8&oe=5AA5773A)
Step 3, make a hole in the spare trim piece.
(https://scontent.fakl1-2.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/23471940_1175987102501584_1549342907797660407_n.jpg?oh=32885e139c0b059487ce0a9a82d222c8&oe=5A63588D)
(https://scontent.fakl1-2.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t31.0-8/23549955_1175987109168250_7866981591806158858_o.jpg?oh=5a12c05cf3627cd44710d6324f06e555&oe=5A9A53CB)
Step 4 - test fit the sub. It fits well, plenty of room.
(https://scontent.fakl1-2.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t31.0-8/23549964_1175987192501575_225955576978479872_o.jpg?oh=537c1cd97bc920458e3f07143c0a1f9e&oe=5AA5329F)
I'm planning to keep it simple, bolt the MDF to the bodywork, fit the trim over the top then screw the sub in place.
See what it sounds like! If it's not right it'll be plan B
Next step after that is to get some thin ply and use it to strengthen the trim, then find some vinyl and leather to try and match the existing stuff.

Did a bit more tinkering with the spare side panel to work towards get the sub fitted. I bought some thin ply to strengthen the panel so I can line it - couldn't find red leather but I got some vinyl which I think will look okay. We'll see if it does!
I used contact adhesive to bond the two wood surfaces together. The scrap metal pile came in handy to  weigh it down.

Will have a play at the weekend.

Just collected the car from Kohl after getting the last of the rust repaired, and a battery clamp made. Pics later :D

Fitted the new speed sensor but couldn't be bothered to move the wife's car out of the way to test.
So I spent half an hour trying and failing to get the centre rubber exhaust mount on properly, eventually leaving a cable tie on there which won't last long but might hold it until I can have another go when the car's on a ramp.

I did a bit more on fitting the subwoofer today. Test fitted the panels, and spent lots of time lining it up, trimming the MDF piece, making a metal bracket, bolting it in, realising it didn't line up, adding another MDF ring as a spacer and finally covering the trim in red vinyl.

More fiddling with the speed sensors today. The factory one works and produces a 5v pulse as expected. The two VW ones do not! Unless the pins are in a totally different order and I wired them wrong, they don't seem to produce the same outputs. I continuity tested the wiring to the dash - all good. So the fault is either the dash itself, or the connector on the factory sensor, which I have now replaced with some spade connectors
Next step - test drive. Can't do it now as I'll wake my daughter up :D


This is the shape of the passenger side under-dash panel I'm missing.
Thanks Takas for bringing yours round, much appreciated.

Another sneaky school run in Rusty
You can tell where I went by following the trail of oil drops

(https://scontent.fakl1-2.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t31.0-8/24059634_10155715139540977_8074783080328155956_o.jpg?oh=2f580bf4d8b1436751e373db4fbb8ad8&oe=5A97E789)

No speedo on the way there. Working speedo on the way back!! As soon as the car starts to warm up, oil starts leaking, possibly from the dipstick, hard to tell. Need to sort that out though.

Sounds like you hbave a poor electrical connection somewhere in your speedo circuit.

Yeah I think so. Last night I continuity tested all the signal wiring from the sensor to the dash but not the other two wires to the sensor which I assume are switched live and earth as there's 12v across them. Will check the earth next. Tracing it should be fun.

Amp is mostly in place. Need a fuse and a longer power cable.

Looks like the oil leak culprit. I tightened it a little bit. Not sure if that will do the trick or it needs to be replaced.

Or stupid enough! :D

Is it the speed sensor causing your troubles with the speedo?

The sensor tests fine, and signal wire has continuity to the dash so I'm thinking it's one of the other two wires which appear to be a switched live and earth. Will wire new ones and see if it cures it.

Today's other news:
It's time for the long awaited clean! Dropped Rusty off today at Finer Details NZ. Imagine how good it'll look after several days of attention from a pro detailer, plus a ceramic coating. So excited to see the results!

Your persistence will pay off and you certainly inspired me.

Test fitting the rings and pinstripes. This is after one of three stages of polishing, and the phone pic really doesn't do it justice. Finer Details NZ are doing an amazing job.

Just a thought Rob,
Have you checked all the vacuum lines around the cold start valve?
I recall having a small idling issue on my first WR. Replacing one of the rubber lines in under the cold start valve component cured that.
Most of the lines are small diameter rubber with the braided sheath, but there is a larger diameter one right underneath that can be overlooked.
Other than that, make sure the metal diaphragm in the metering head on top of the airbox seats correctly when closed. If it's off center it would cause problems at idle. There should be a tiny gap all around it's circumference when "closed". Will have to find out what that gap is though.

And I received this awesome period accessory - a CBOX cassette holder.

Hey Rob...

Really enjoying this project for the many months now and just wanted to say thank you for all the posts..

And whenever you post pictures I have to admire your choice of wheels...absolutely perfect

Yes" Someone else who likes my wheels :)

I got Finer Details NZ to drop Rusty off at Kohl Rod & Custom Ltd for them to check out the brake fluid leak. It turns out it was my fault for buying the wrong T-piece union for the rear. They've fitted a new one and are making a new front to rear line (the only one I didn't replace) because it doesn't quite reach now.
Happy with that because it means all lines are new now.

I can collect Rusty tomorrow from Finer Details NZ. They just had a couple of things to finish off after the Christmas break.

Then I have a list of things to fix - broken seat release cable, speedo, stalling, and it's WoF time again :D

So I looked a bit closer and found that they are not in good shape! The rubber is hard and makes cracking noises if you try to bend it.

So I cut new ones to length but I need to wait for the clips and joiners to arrive to finish the job. They apparently cleared customs days ago.

Finally got my joiners and clips and finished making my new vac lines. No change to the stalling when warm. Need to try a few more things now I've ruled that out.

https://www.facebook.com/ProjectRustyquattro/videos/1219986208101673/

New development on the speedo, I can hear the speedo pulses coming through a speaker!! So I assume that means an earth fault in its wiring. Still need to trace the wires and see exactly where they go, I don't think it's as simple as a ground, signal and switched live.

I tried tracing the wires to the speed sensor tonight with no success - talk about spaghetti! But then I dug through my documentation and found this. Which means I can run a new switched live and ground to it and see if it cures the problem.

Dash and various gearbox speed sensors removed for some troubleshooting with a friend's help help later this week.

(https://scontent.fakl1-2.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t31.0-8/26240485_1222027684564192_62381688677518395_o.jpg?oh=11c110fc4708d637d1c7955d4a3238db&oe=5AFB6528)

Also I've decided to call it with the drive to Leadfoot - it's in two weeks and it's just not worth the risk. Even if I get the WoF by then the car will be unproven. Still planning to go, just in another car.

So I think I'll get the front bumper removed and sort out the things I need to there like headlight washers and broken intercooler mounts, plus I will get my silicone hoses soon so I can do those too.

I ordered a new set of HT leads today just in case.

Yep that was the plan! We failed to get the dash to come on properly so gave up on that to avoid damaging it, but proved that the factory sender works. Tried all new wiring, no change, so it must be the dash unit itself. Sigh.

Good news, the dash and sensor have been proven to work. Turns out the wiring diagram I was using was for a 1985 car and mine is a 1984 build. So I was testing the wrong pins!

I did some tinkering this morning and tested continuity from signal wire to dash and it works. So all of the parts have been proven to be functional outside the car. Confused now.
 Haven't had time yet to re-fit and test again.

So you've had the dash working in the car previously correct? So it could only be an intermittent circuit somewhere.. Could be the connector, could be a broken wire, or even a broken down wire that won't carry the required current. Best of luck!

OK, so the speedo works on the bench. Maybe check that the mechanical thingy that drives the speedo sensor is working, ie no stripped cogs or drivers. Or drive it with a drill, as you did on the bench. I'm guessing you have a good power supply and negative supply to the sensor. I don't know what the power supply on these cars should be but some hall speedo sensors have battery voltage (they reduce voltage inside them), others have 5 volt, reduced from the instrument cluster. Does anything else in the car need a road speed signal,  ie cruise control, transmission controller, engine controller, radio, wipers, that voice warning system, etc. (Just some ideas).
One of those circuits could be faulty pulling down the speedo sensor output which, if it's a hall sensor, will only be 5 volt high and 0 volt low. Maybe cut the speedo sensor wire at the instrument cluster and at the sensor and connect a new direct wire, just to test, (as you did on the bench). Good luck

The speedo is working at last!
The problem was wiring after all. I thought I'd tested the wiring by connecting a switched live to the signal wire and putting a tester on the other end, where I got a 12v live.
But it turned out that somewhere the signal wire to the dash connector was hooked up to a switched live, and also connected to the speech synthesiser, so the pulses from the sender were being ingnored by the dash, but clicks were coming from Patrizia's speaker.
I decided to bin the lot and run a new live, earth and signal wire. And it's working!

(https://scontent.fakl1-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/26733835_1226948060738821_273632158870291751_n.jpg?oh=05392ea29639b93cd0de418df598ef9a&oe=5AE37E74)

I also sorted a separate switched live for the pin that powers the backlight on the odometer, which wasn't working. My mate swapped out the bulbs for LEDs in the holders, so it should last now. And it's readable .

I think I've sorted the idling issue too. A video from Gears and Gasoline about spark plugs reminded me that I changed them, and maybe they could be at fault, so I bought some new ones. Bosch weren't available so I went for the NGK equivalent.

I have to agree with VW'n. I have owned my '88 MK2 Golf for 22 years and up until 4 years ago it was a daily driver. It only let me down once, the hall unit in the distributor failed and thankfully it was when I tried to back out of the garage. Yes, I have had to do ongoing maintenance but this is expected of an old vehicle.

Hey Rob, maybe check the load adjusting valve on the rear axle. I had one that leaked from where the mechanical linkage went in and sucked in air. Took a while to find it. No signs of leaking and had to keep bleeding the brakes. Had to peel but the rubber cover to find the wet signs of leaking.

Will check everything again. There's no valve at the rear, just a union splitting the pipe to each rear wheel. That has all been replaced.

Didn't get the brakes bled today as I spent the rest of the day wallpapering the lounge. :D

I did fit my new HT leads though.

The pedal probably travels too far or is too soft.
Rob have you bled the master cylinder? It's pretty common for air to get trapped in the master cylinder and no matter what you do the brakes will feel crape till you get rid of that air.
With a car that has sat soo long I would have rebuilt or replaced the master.

I have bled the master yes. it has had a new one at some point, I think Steve replaced it sometime in the last few years, could be wrong there.

It feels a bit soft at the top of the pedal then lower down it bites much better. I'll get it to someone who knows what they're doing as I want this sorted :)

The reason I questioned this, my Lotus always failed the handbrake test until I thought of a cheat to pass , then it returned to normal......................they simply expected too much from it.............umbrella handbrake actuating  a tiny 1" square pads on the disc.
Prior to going to the testing station, I wound the adjusters up till the pads were dragging on the discs, went for the test and voila.

On my UR (LHD) the feds complained about too much pedal travel. As the pedal height is adjustable I bought it up to the level of the clutch pedal. The Feds said this was much better. It's all in the mind isn't it. There was no change in braking ability.

Your right in taking it to someone even if it's just to confirm that all is ok.
Brakes is not something you want to go wrong.
If all is ok then a temporary adjustments of the pedal to pass warrent might be in order.

I'm taking it to the Toy Shop Wellington tomorrow night. They happen to be there late for a training session and John the owner has very kindly said I can drop Rusty off after rush hour. It's about a 20km drive. I've organised the Mrs as support vehicle and taxi home :D

That was awesome! First drive on the motorway, doing the 20km to The Toy Shop Wellington.
Made a new friend at the petrol station. That will happen a lot I think.
And what's that in the background in pic 2? A Coupe quattro with properly working brakes, that's what.

Not sorted yet. Had a drive of Takas' CQ and his brakes are way better at the top end, mine has nothing until about 2/3 of the way down. Not confidence-inspiring.
Toyshop will sort it :D The front wheels were hot when I arrived so the brakes are definitely binding, so they're going to remove and service the calipers first and go from there.

This is the update from today:

There is a fluid leak at accumulator area which needs sorting.
Calipers seem OK.
They are going to take a look at master cylinder today.
The discs aren’t right. The pads don’t contact the full surface area.

Toy Shop supplied the discs and are going to resolve that issue. New discs will be a week, so Rusty will be sleeping there for a while.

I've asked for a price to change gearbox and rear diff fluids while it's there. I don't fancy doing those without a hoist.

Small update - the calipers are good, but seals on the master cylinder were not so good so they're replacing them. Waiting on them coming in from overseas.
But they're still not sure if that's what the main issue is.
Hoping it's nothing to do with the ABS pump as that sounds expensive.

Did you mean remove the brake pressure pump not the ABS pump?

I struggle to understand why they are removing the ABS pump unless it’s leaking and drawing air. The pump only holds or releases individual brake line pressure when sensing a wheel lock. At rest and normal driving conditions all ports are open. The pump can be tested using a Bosch ABS test unit. This simulates and actuates the respective port solenoids per wheel line. Any fail with the pump operation or combi relay will activate the ABS warning lamp.

The pump does not create pressure or assist with braking effort. Only anti locking wheel function.

Brake pedal effort is assisted by the pressure accumulator (bomb) and at rest, motor off, should sustain approx 30 - 50 Brake applications before pedal goes hard.

Have you replaced the brake caliper hoses x4.?
Title: Re: Build thread - Rob's Audi UR Quattro
Post by: RobClubley on March 10, 2018, 07:56:13 am
Pressure pump would make more sense. Maybe I got the wrong story as I'm talking to the manager and he's talking to his mechanic so it could be Chinese whispers.

The hoses are all new HEL braided ones, yes.

Hoping it's not the bomb. I spoke to one of the urq Facebook group members whose bomb failed and it gave a rock-hard peda, which is the opposite of my issue.
Title: Re: Build thread - Rob's Audi UR Quattro
Post by: Horch on March 10, 2018, 08:22:41 am
If your master cylinder and calipers have been reconditioned then the pressure assistance circuit needs to be investigated.

Ultimately the system hydraulic circuit needs to be tested with suitable gauge for output.

Do you know if the brake servo was reconditioned at the time the master cyl was serviced.

In other news - my brakes should now pass a WoF. Apparently they worked but the car dived left and right under braking! Then they worked out that there's a bleed process for the power steering pump which also provides pressure for the brakes. Bleeding that sorted it.

But there are a couple of other things that should have failed the last WoF - headlight bulbs which I bought which are a bit of a weird colour - will swap them for originals, and rear seatbelts aren't retracting. They're new so just need adjusting.

Not much odometer movement lately!
I assume that blip was when someone read the trip counter instead of the odometer!!

Ohhhhh yeah!
Only 33 months and *cough* dollars into this 12 month $15k project and we're on the road. Not finished, but driveable at last.
Thanks to Wellington European for getting me over the line. Legends.

Second supermarket car park of the evening. Terrible pic, it was getting dark :D
The drive home was uneventful. Loud. Very loud. It sounds sooo good though.
It goes well, brakes well, steers nicely, rides nicely. Very happy indeed.
There are definitely some rough edges to sort out, but I can drive it at last! So happy!

I am loving this car! It sounds like it's gargling on the fuel not just drinking it, what an awesome sound!
Considering it's 33 years old, the steering is light and accurate, it goes very nicely, stops pretty well. It's flippin' hot in there in this sun though.
Cornering hard makes the rear wheels scrape - not sure what's touching what at the moment.

And did I mention that sound? Epic. Can't stop grinning.

Working on the to-do list now :D

Rear indicators are dim
Samco hoses to fit
Under-dash trims
Radio aerial not connected
Intercooler mounts broken
Slow coolant leak
Oil leak
Remove and re-fit both bumpers with proper support brackets and missing padding between sections
Rear wheels rub on back bumper on hard cornering
Fit headlight washers

Plenty to do !

Fixed the indicators by swapping the LED bulbs for some normal ones from Super Cheap :)

I have no problem getting it wet or dirty but I don't want to sit in stop/start traffic for an hour with the windows steaming up. Not when I have an auto A4 with aircon :)

Ah, yes I see. Stop start traffic is little fun, whatever you're in, let alone a car you're just learning to trust. I know my good wife hated driving my urq out of Auckland through rush hour one time when she had no choice, but she doesn't drive it much! I don't mind that traffic so much in the quattro, I have done it a few times but don't like being on and off the clutch all the time, feeling like I'm using up a months worth of clutch plates.

I did drive mine today, and near Morrinsville I experienced the worst weather I think I've ever driven the quattro in. Could hardly see even with wipers on full. Your rain today was probably worse again!
